    I've seen on some computers but I'm not able to reproduce it!
    any one ?

    I didn't see this problem on my Windows laptop but did see it on a Linux machine. It's tough to say what all of the different configuration variables might be. I was able to get the "Metrics" check box to appear on the property page by modifying plugin.xml by replacing the enabledWhen with the deprecated objectClass as follows:

    <extension point="org.eclipse.ui.propertyPages"> <page name="Metrics" class="net.sourceforge.metrics.properties.MetricsPropertyPage" nameFilter="*" id="net.sourceforge.metrics.properties.MetricsPropertyPage"> <objectClass value="org.eclipse.jdt.core.IJavaProject"/> <!-- <enabledWhen> <instanceof value="org.eclipse.jdt.core.IJavaProject"/> </enabledWhen> --> </page> </extension>

    Obviously, this is not the correct long-term answer. I have seen some bug reports relating to this. Apparently, in some cases, there is unspecified behavior if a property page is registered more than one. I don't know (yet) whether this is the case here.

    I am having the same problem with 1.3.8 whilst 1.3.7 works. With 1.3.8 it fails to load the Metrics2 plugin with the following error in the eclipse log:

    !ENTRY org.eclipse.update.configurator 4 0 2010-09-30 12:26:07.566
    !MESSAGE Unable to find feature.xml in directory: E:\eclipse\features\net.sourceforge.metrics_1.3.8.20100730-001.jar.

    I am running Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) for JEE developers with JRE 1.6.0u20 and I have the following additional plugins installed:
    EclEmma 1.5.0
    Implementors 0.16
    EclBatis 1.1.0.RC3
    Eclipse-Fullscreen 1.0.7
    AnyEditTools 2.3.1
    Findbugs 1.3.9
    RegExTester 1.3
    Visual editor 1.5 (29/08/10)
    Eclipse CheckStyle 5.1.0
    Eclipse Utils 1.0.0
    JD Eclipse 0.13

    HTH,

    Just a bit of missed info. This is running on Windows XP SP3 with 4GB Ram and all the plugins have been installed from their downloadable versions or offline update sites as I have problems with Eclipse and the proxy servers here so cannot update from update sites directly.

    Metrics2 was installed from the downloadable version on the files page.
